Fifth-year head coach Monica McDonald has recently led the Cardinals to the two best seasons in program history.
McDonald guided Otterbein to its best record ever in 2009, going 24-9 en route to making the OAC Tournament semi-finals. The team also enjoyed the best start to a season of any Cardinal team, beginning the fall campaign at 11-0.
She then topped the mark in 2010 as the Lady Cardinals played to a 26-7 record, making the NCAA Tournament for the first time. The team bowed out to eventual national champion Calvin (MI) in its opening round match.Read Full Bio
